One of two Alfred Hitchcock themed pictures coming down the pike. This one stars Anthony Hopkins as Hitch while the director was making Psycho (the other, in a situation reminiscent the Capote thing a few years ago, stars Tobey Jones as the auteur while he was making The Birds.)
Focusing on the relationship between the director and his partner, Alma Reville, played by Helen Mirren here easily stealing the show from Sir Anthony, the film appears to be a bit of witty and charming Oscar Bait-y kind of entertainment from the director of Anvil! The Story of Anvil, Sacha Gervasi.
It should also be noted that the casting on this Studio picture goes pretty deep with Scarlett Johansson playing Janet Leigh, as well as supporting roles from Michael Stuhlbarg, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Ralph Macchio, and two characters who should be working more: Michael Wincott & Kurtwood Smith.
Are you ready for dueling Hitchcock movies? (For comparison sake, the trailer for the Toby Jones HBO picture is tucked under the seat)
